    Hello to all,
    My name is Dave Martin. I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I'm about to purchase a new A6000 and plan to use older manual focus lenses with it and would like to know if the finder brightness remains constant or does it dim when the aperture is stopped down with adapted lenses making it hard to focus. I'm looking forward to this camera and the knowledge to be gained on this site. Thanks in advance. Dave

    There is an option to have live view turned off, just like if an external flash is in use. It will "brighten" the view for focusing.

    Yes, it will be a Live View, so it will change as you change the aperture, if ISO and shutter are constant. This will of course be dependent on the MODE you are shooting under. If Program mode(s), the view won't darken. If Aperture Priority, shutter speed and AUTO ISO will try to keep exposure constant.

    Thanks to all who responded. I hoped it would work much the same as the X-Pro1 I'm using now and it appears it will. Now to sell the Fuji and find a few lenses to go with the A6000. Thanks again. Dave

    If you stop at a "few," you'll be the first, Dave. :laugh:
